Bugner a knock out contestant?

Nov 19, 2009 by

The I’m A Celeb markets have moved in the direction we anticipated with Katie Price. Early quotes on her were huge given the way the show was likely to pan out – Katie virtually guaranteed to be up for bushtucker trial after bushtucker trial, and using the show as a vehicle to get the public back on her side.
The 8-1 on Gino we recommended is also looking a good early punt, now he is trading at less than half those odds. We’re not sure he’s worthy of such a short price and at this stage we’re struggling to see a clear front runner.
We don’t think Kim’s outspokenness and all this ‘luvvy’ business is going to work in her favour in the long run, whereas Sam Fox looks a more ‘stable’ series runner, and you should keep her green.
On the outright, Lucy Benjamin has drifted out to a very tempting 14-1, and the 5-1 for her to be Queen Of The Jungle is definitely worth a poke. She seems level-headed, fair, genuine… the sort of traits than can see a contestant go far. She just needs to back this up with a bit more camera time and some top efforts on the bushtucker trials.
George Hamilton has made a solid enough start. He is a true gent and 11-2 for him to be King Of The Jungle looks too big. His chances might improve once there is a bushtucker trial he is actually eligible to take part in, rather than being a NR ‘on medical grounds’.
The intriguing contestant now is Joe Bugner. He could prove highly entertaining in a slightly unhinged sort of way and is worth backing at 22s on the outright, and 12s to be King. No bushtucker trial will faze him and it was noticeable he was the one contestant who went to the aid of Katie Price last night at the end of the live trial.
